Ableworld Support Local Foodbank this Christmas

This entry was posted in General November 30, 2020

Ableworld try to support local charities as much as possible, and Christmas usually give us an opportunity to encourage our teams to offer support to others in need. Ableworld Support Nantwich Foodbank

With the pandemic, this year, Ableworld Head Office decided to support Nantwich Foodbank with their reverse advent calendar appeal. The pandemic has affected so many lives in so many different ways and those relying on foodbanks has increased dramatically during the last 12 months.

Nantwich foodbank was set up in 2013 and has grown year on year, supporting more people in the local community who may need help. Foodbanks across the UK deliver a food parcel approximately every 9 seconds.

Sara Chesters, Senior Operations Manager for Ableworld said

“We always try to support a local charity over the Christmas period, as our head office team are always keen to support and looking for ways to help others. We saw the reverse advent calendar and thought it was a fantastic opportunity to support a great local cause. We quickly received a large number of donations and have continued to remind colleagues throughout November to bring items in, just by picking up a few extra items during a weekly shop, or adding an extra gift for someone while Christmas shopping, and what an amazing response we received. As you can see, we have collected a huge amount of gifts, treats, food and money which has all been handed over to a very appreciative team this morning at Nantwich Foodbank. We are really pleased we have been able to help, hopefully make someone’s Christmas a little easier this year.

A spokesperson from Nantwich Foodbank said “Wow, thank you so much. We rely on donations and really appreciate you and your colleagues for supporting our cause this year. You really will make a difference to so many local people this Christmas. Thank you”

Please support and utilise your local foodbank

There are many local foodbanks around the UK and we would encourage everyone to think about making a donation of whatever they can to support them. Anyone, from any walk of life could find themselves reliant on a foodbank and we think its fantastic what these volunteers do to help others. We also want to encourage people to use their local foodbanks if they are in need, they are there to help, for whatever reason that may be. Search online for your local foodbank or contact your local Citizens Advice or Social Services teams.

Everyone at Ableworld would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas
